It is in the character of very few men to ho
nor without envy a friend who has prospered.
With Ashley Script, designer Ashley Havinden immortalized his own handwriting. The typeface appeared in 1955 and reflects the spirit of the times. Most striking is the sharp form of the lower case s and the shape of the d, which looks like the mirror image of a six. These components interrupt the otherwise homogeneous alphabet and give the font a dynamic character. The individual figures look like handwriting spontaneously and quickly put to paper. Ashley Script is best used in point sizes larger than 12 and suitable for middle length texts and headlines.
